Subject: Incorrect Information
I was married to Georgia's nephew Jerry for 22+ years. Georgia was married to Harry ( a trainer lawyer...but he ran a night club across from Madison Square Garden). Georgia and Harry raised Jerry. They divorced and she married another lawyer...and they stayed together until her death.
Subject: Vaudeville to Burlesque
Georgia Sothern, real name Hazel Anderson, was my mother's 2nd cousin. She started out in vaudeville with her uncle and later switched to burlesque. She was a devoted daughter to a mother who suffered from TB and she helped support her. After leaving burlesque, she married a wealthy NY lawyer and lived happily ever after.
When I was a child, she visited us in Georgia. Her aunt (my grandmother) lived with us. My only memory (I was 2 or 3) is of her taking me to a department store toy department and telling me that I could have any toy I wanted. I picked out a very inexpensive baby doll and named her Hazel Bean Blossom. I do remember that she was quite beautiful and glamorous. We have many of the glamour shots of her in our family photos. She commented in her autobiography that she danced very fast..in a frenzy almost. I am the family "historian" and finding this film on here was a great treat for me. I was almost afraid to watch...not sure what I would see but found it to be quite g rated when compared to some of the music videos we find on TV.
Subject: Her Gimmick
Georgia was known for how fast she danced so this is how she did it and is a piece of burlesque history..
Subject: Normal Speed
obviously to those who have no real knowledge of early strip/burlesque shows would think that it sped up, but in reality that is the way this particular strip dance is supposed to be.
Yes, the sped up pace of the film is hilarious! Just hilarious.
Subject: WHERE CAN I BUY TICKETS??
AMAZING stag reel which features Georgia Sothern (and yes! That isn't a typo!) doing her dance from the 'musical hit' 'Star and Garter' (which, amazingly after a bit of research actually existed! With Gypsy Rose Lee! Anyways, either this reel is sped up quite a bit, or Miss Sothern is very close to suffering some mal seizures, because she is SERIOUSLY whipping her head around in this one, so much so, I began laughing my butt off. Where was she when the Swing Wing was being introduced?? A MUST SEE on this site!!
